I am such a fan of audio books! Lately, my favorites have been contemporary Christian stories. I just finished listening to Then Came You by Becky Wade and I can without a doubt say that it is one of the best audio books I have ever heard.
It is read by two narrators, with Garner read by a man and Kathleen read by a woman. And they are spot on! I read this story on Kindle last year, so I had an idea in my mind about how these two should sound. Usually I have to get used to whatever voice is reading the story and simply adjust to it. Not this time! It was as if the characters came to life and sounded exactly as I expected them to. The female narrator had to handle multiple character voices and did a good job with that, as well.
Then Came You is a novella packed with heart and one of my all time favorite introductions to a series. You can read my review from last year here. I highly recommend grabbing this novella on audio. I don’t think you will regret it!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
A leather-bound journal. A single father. A woman in pursuit of freedom.
Garner Bradford, heir to the troubled Bradford Shipping empire, doesn’t know much about babies. But he’s going to have to learn fast because he’s just become a single father to his newborn daughter. As he confesses through his journal entries, he’s not entirely sure how to keep a newborn alive, whether or not he’ll ever patch together his shattered heart, or how to forgive himself for his mistakes.
Career girl Kathleen Burke is wholly uninterested in settling down. She has big dreams, and none of them include Garner and his small hometown in Washington State. Yet she can’t seem to get her handsome boss out of her head or her heart. There’s something extraordinarily tempting about his beautifully sad green eyes. . . .
Told through journal entries, phone conversations, and letters, Then Came You is a unique, heart-stirring romance novella by acclaimed author Becky Wade.

How fun! Glad to know the audio is a good listen. Read this one as an e-book when it first came out (so good!). The only audio book that I’ve heard (or in recent years – I think I did listen to “David Copperfield” once YEARS ago) is “Jane of Austin” which I thought was excellent! 🙂
